TSC will not be registering teachers whose training is in subjects that are currently not in curriculum.

“Those who have undertaken a PGDE with these courses are NOT eligible for registration as teachers. These courses do not provide sufficient subject content and therefore the mastery of the content in two teaching subjects is not adequate as required.” Adds the guidelines.

TSC however clarifies that ‘Bachelor of Science or Arts Degree holders with a post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and two teaching subjects qualify for registration’.
